The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining & Energy Union was fined some $5.6m for breaching workplace laws in 2016-17, compared with just $1.8m in the previous financial year. Australian Building & Construction Commission head Stephen McBurney says the militant union could potentially face fines of more than $20m under the Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Act, which has significantly increased the maximum fines for both individuals and unions. The CFMMEU has been fined more than $1m for workplace breaches so far in 2018-19.
